Gal Gadot shows off statuesque legs as she playfully sticks out her tongue in retro chic swimsuit shoot

Gal Gadot brought back the 1960s in a retro chic swimsuit shoot she posted to her Instagram page this weekend.

The 37-year-old Wonder Woman star playfully stuck her tongue out in one of the string of black and white snaps.

She showed off her sensationally vertiginous legs in a dark one-piece that emphasized her enviably svelte frame.

Posing up a storm around a directors’ chair in a backyard, she swept her hair up and wound it in towel in a stylish flourish.

On the movie front, her upcoming projects include a remake of the Alfred Hitchock romance thriller To Catch A Thief.

Based on a mystery novel by David Dodge, the 1955 Hitchcock movie starred Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in the principal roles.

The new version of To Catch A Thief is not Gal’s only current venture into territory previously covered by Old Hollywood.

She is also starring in and producing an upcoming movie about Cleopatra, which has generated blowback on account of her being white.

Gal, an Israeli who served in her country’s military in accordance with its draft, is playing the legendary queen of Egypt.

Though she was ethnically of Greek origin, Cleopatra has attracted ‘whitewashing’ controversies over the white actresses who have played her.

Gal addressed the controversy on BBC Arabic last month saying: ‘First of all if you want to be true to the facts then Cleopatra was Macedonian.’

The international film star, who is also a co-producer on the film, claimed: ‘We were looking for a Macedonian actress that could fit Cleopatra. She wasn’t there, and I was very passionate about Cleopatra.’

She added: ‘People are people, and with me I want to celebrate the legacy of Cleopatra and honor this amazing historic icon that I admire so much.’

Gal threw down the gauntlet for other filmmakers to come up with competing versions of the story: ‘You know, anybody can make this movie and anybody can go ahead and do it. I’m very passionate that I’m going to do my own too.’
